Happy Monday!

But what I really want to know is how in the heck is it July already?!

This time of the year is usually pretty busy with summer vacations, spending time with family, and attending gatherings. Things are different now, but I still don’t have a lot of time or energy to spend an excessive amount of time in the kitchen. With all of that being said, quick and easy meals are necessary for me. No time to spend extra hours in the kitchen making dinner. I need meals that will get me in and out of the kitchen quick, fast, and in a hurry.

As the weather warms up, I also find myself preparing meals with more fresh ingredients such as fruits, vegetables, and herbs. One of the great things about using fresh ingredients is that you need very few ingredients to make them taste great. I am talking about pretty much-using salt, pepper, and some olive oil to make them work.

Salads are the perfect way to pack in nutrients and toss everything in one bowl with an easy to make the dressing. This recipe combines the tart flavor of fresh tomatoes with the sweetness of sliced peaches. Add in the freshness of some chopped mint, a light homemade dressing, and pair it with your favorite grilled protein for a quick and easy dinner option. This recipe for tomato peach salad is one that you definitely want to give a try!

    I love the addition of peaches in my salad but I never add them on my own, I usually leave that up to restaurants. But I’m always in the mood for a tomato based salad especially topped with a little goat cheese. Can’t wait to try this recipe Lakita πŸ™‚

      I have never thought to add peaches to a salad myself either, but it really does give any salad a little something extra so I will have to give it a try more often!

    I love adding fresh fruit to salads. But I don’t think I’ve ever tried fresh peaches on a salad. So I’m looking forward to adding peaches to my salads this summer.
